Secretary of State launches ethics probe of Ald. Beale’s wife - Chicago Sun-Times

WOW!!!! First his daughter takes part in controversial state legislative scholarships to attend one of our state's public universities and now an ethics probe on his wife:
The wife of Ald. Anthony Beale is the subject of an ethics probe for undisclosed “job performance” issues, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office confirmed Tuesday.

Dana Beale was hired by the secretary of state in 2000 and worked as an enforcement auditor in White’s securities division until last May, when she resigned from her $79,620-a-year post.

Despite leaving that job eight months ago, she remains under investigation by James Burns, the secretary of state’s inspector general and a former U.S. attorney, White spokesman Dave Druker said.

“The inspector general is conducting an investigation pertaining to her job performance in the secretary of state’s office,” Druker said, declining to offer any other specifics about the nature of the investigation.

Burns declined comment.

Dana Beale is a legislative aide to state Rep. Robert Rita (D-Blue Island) who receives a “token” $400-a-month state paycheck for helping, as Rita described, “serve more than 100,000 constituents … [handling] constituent service requests for help and community outreach activities.”
This causes me to draw a conclusion at the moment but perhaps you will be thinking what I'm thinking. At least I hope you are.
